From the Land of Gators: Why UCLA Must Beat UF

A local (Florida) perspective from a Bruin in Gatorland.

The Tucson Curse - Can Mora Break It?

Can Jim Mora's UCLA football program break the Tucson curse where the Bruins have imploded numerous times against less talented Wildcat program during the last decade.

TSN Ranks Top 25 College Football Players for 2013


Two Bruins are on the list, one of which is top ten. Click to the article to see who they are and where they are ranked. A good read from my poker buddy, Matt Hayes.

According to Vegas, UCLA goes 7-5 next season

Vegas projects a 7-5 record for Jim Mora's second year at UCLA.

Sydney Leroux Quiets Racial Slurs with a Sweet Goal.


Bruin for life and ex-UCLA soccer star scores in extra time in the wake of racial taunts during a match between USA and Canada in Toronto.

Adidas . . . Are you freaking kidding me???


UCLA (and other schools) to wear a debacle of a uniform for the rest of the regular season. Short sleeves? Camouflage shorts? Uggghhhh!

The BCS Game Just Got Less Watchable. Flags WILL be flying.


Yes. The BCS Champsionship Game between Alabama and Notre Dame will feature SPTRs. Hopefully not the crew led by the guy in the glasses.


Same old hypocrisy by the MSM hacks . . .

The Bruins dominate a bad Colorado team and win by 28 on the road and the hacks note that UCLA lacks killer instinct, didn't beat the Buffs by as much as Fresno State, etc. U$C* beats a poor Utah...

UCLA v. Houston will be shown nationally on the PAC 12 Network.


There was some concern a few weeks ago that perhaps it would show the Arizona v. South Carolina State game. With both Pac 12 teams winning big games last weekend and Houston having its issues, this concern remained. Well, it is official: UCLA is on the national network; Arizona is on Pac 12 Arizona. This is good news to those of us outside the Pac 12 footprint that only get the national network. Also, thank you to Dish Network for coming to an agreement iwht the Pac 12 Netowrks. Hopefully the e-mail I sent (and posted here) helped Dish move towards an agreement.

ESPN BIG 10 Guy Predicts a Nebraska Kickoff Return.


I guess that he hasn't scouted Jeff Locke. 9 kickoffs, 9 touchbacks against Rice in the humidity, almost all of which were out of the end zone. Expect more of the same all season.


Why I am Satisfied With UCLA's Performance Last Night

Quick reflections on UCLA's season opener v. Rice.

CBSSports' Website Promoting ESPN's Game instead of UCLA v. Rice.


They are promoting South Carolina v. Vandy. Interesting since UCLA v. Rice is being shown on the CBS Sports Network. Also interesting that I couldn't find any readily available content about tonight's game in their site. CBS chooses not to market their own product. Who runs that place, the Morgan Center?

Rick Neuheisel Claims Lack of Support and "Partnership" while at UCLA.


Although he does not directly point to Chianti and the Moron Center, the implication is clear.


My Letter to Dish Network Regarding the Pac 12 Networks

Dear Dish Network: I have been a Dish Network customer for over 10 years. One of the reasons that I chose Dish was because of the availability of the Fox Sports package. With the Fox Sports...

Bruins Selling Nebraska Tix on E-Bay for Serious $$$$


Looks like the Rose Bowl may be a sea of red . . . again, circa Wisconsin '94 and '98. I know that BNers are the type of quality fans that would offer tix to Bruins eager to go to the game on this forum instead of resorting to selling on eBay to the enemy. It still hurts to see so-called "Bruins" selling out for a couple of bucks, even in this economy. Another part of the "UCLA culture," I guess. This also hurts because school is not in session for this game, although that never deterred me from attending SDSU in 87, Nebraska in 88, Tenn and Mich in 89, and 'Furd in 90. Hope that Bruins come out en masse for this critical game.

CBSSports Ranks Top 16 College Hoops Teams of All Time, 5 of Which are U.C.L.A. Squads


1969 team is #12 1967 team is #11 1972 team is #7 1973 team is #3 1968 team is #2 1976 Indiana team was ranked #1.

UCLA Not Included in Jerry Palm's Bowl Projections


CBSSports' Jerry Palm projects 8 Pac 12 teams going to bowls next season, including U$C* in the title game. UCLA is not included in the 8, which also includes Utah and the Arizona schools. That means Palm thinks we'll finish 5th or 6th in the Pac 12 South. I hope Coach Mora uses stuff like this as bulletin board material . . .

All Pac 12 and Big 10 FB Teams to Play Non-Conference Games Against Each Other Starting in 2017


Beginning in 2017, every Pac 12 team will play at least one non-conference game against a Big 12 team, kind of like similar arrangements between the Big 10 and ACC in college hoops and Pac 12 and Big 12 in college hoops.

Way OT: But Every Football Fan Shoudl Watch This Amazing Ending.


This would have topped the The Big Game, 1981, if the band had come into the field. 15 laterals to win a Div. III game. Even the announcing is eerily similar to the '81 Big Game.

Men's Soccer Defeats Louisville, 1-0 in 2nd OT.


Men's Soccer Defeats Louisville, 1-0 in 2nd OT.

Avenges losses in last year's postseason and earlier to begin this season.

Email Targeted UC Regents Demanding Regime Change at UCLA Athletics

Email addresses for key UC Regents UCLA alums can be contacting demanding wholesale regime change for UCLA Athletics.


UCLA Likely to Go Bowling No Matter What Happens in the Next 2 Games

The 6-6 UCLA football program will most likely go bowling no matter what transpires against Southern Cal and the inaugural Pac-12 championship game.


Intelligent Scheduling in the Modern CFB Landscape

More thoughts on strategically putting together out of conference scheduling in modern college football landscape.


My Arizona State Experiment

A unique read on UCLA's victory against Arizona State by a fan, who had gone dark and watched the recorded game keeping himself completely blacked out from sports media across all platforms.

Randy Shannon Warned Players About Nevin Shapiro


Somewhat OT, except for the fact that there was a huge push to get this guy as DC, but, if this report is to be believed, it looks like Randy Shannon is clean in the U of Miami debacle. He even went so far as to explicitly warn players to stay away from the guy.

UCLA Misses On Hoops Recruit Kevin Ware, Who Signs LOI With UCF.


Sad that the Bruins cannot even beat out a school with absolutely zero basketball history (but with a young, up and coming coach) for an elite recruit.
